DICOM PS3.20 2019b - Imaging Reports using HL7 Clinical Document Architecture

5.2.8 Value Specification

The template table may constrain values to a single fixed value, to a Value Set from which the value is to be drawn, or to a named Concept Domain. It may non-normatively reference a mapping from a DICOM SOP Instance or an HL7 message.

The template table may contain elements without a value specification, and without a Business Name. These are typically id elements. The application creating the document instance shall fill these elements with appropriate values.

5.2.8.1 Coded Simple Value

Values of Data Type CS (Coded Simple Value) have a fixed code system defined in the CDA Specification, and are simple strings. The template tables identify only the constraint on the code value, and do not specify the fixed code system nor the code meaning (display name), which are not encoded in the CDA instance.
